Once a full analysis of our experimental results has been accepted for publication, it is our policy to make the data available to other researchers. (By "full analysis" we mean a paper where a detailed analysis of all of the data can be presented, not the limited forums allowed by Nature and Science.) These data sets can be
downloaded from this page.

If you plan to use these data as part of a scientific study, we would like to hear from you. In particular, if you have suggestions for how we might collaborate on a novel analysis of the data or the design of a new experiment, feel free to contact us. Of course, we would like to receive preprints or reprints of any papers in
which these data are included.

Each data set is provided in its entirety in two formats:

  1. An Excel 4.0 spreadsheet (*.xls) with labels to indicate the variables and experimental treatments.
  2. An ASCII file (*.dat) where each census is a record (line) and individual data values are comma-delimited.

The spreadsheet (worksheet) is self-explanatory. If you download the ASCII data file, you must also download the accompanying ASCII text file (*.txt) which explains how the experimental treatments are coded. Click on the icons to download the files. Refer to the original publications for a description of the experimental
design and treatments.
